COVID-19 Training Video “Return to Campus Essentials”

July 08, 2020 6:00 PM

Dear Colleagues,

Western’s Health, Safety & Well-being team has developed an eight-minute COVID-19 training video(accessed via OWL) called “Return to Campus Essentials” that all employees must view.

In addition, we wanted to share a new two-page PDF document that summarizes important steps employees must take before returning to Western and actions they should take while on campus. The document also outlines a series of measures the University is taking to help ensure the health and safety of our community.

It is important to note that Western requires all employees and students to wear non-medical masks/face coverings when in the presence of others and in common and shared spaces on campus. Employees and students will be supplied with washable Western-branded non-medical masks/face coverings when returning to campus.

If you have any questions, please email

Thank you for your cooperation as we work together for a safer campus community.


Jane O’Brien
Associate Vice-President (Human Resources)
